Brand: Aloha Sourced
Location: Laguna Beach, CA
Mission: To share and be a source of knowledge by creating beneficial body care products using local, ethically-sourced ingredients. We're about connecting our products to a story and experiences we've had in Hawaii, California and our travels.
Motto: Conserve water, shower with a friend
Inspiration: Inspired by nature and its ability to aid in skin ailments. Inspired by a simplistic design approach to help lessen our environmental impact.
Favorite ingredient to use: We have many favorites and each ingredient has its special benefit and purpose, but what makes us unique is that we utilize bamboo powder in all of our products. Bamboo powder is an excellent exfoliate and natural sourceof silica. The powder is fine enough to offer a gentle feel on the skin, yet is great at smoothing away rough skin patches.
Personal Favorite Product: Tea Tree Eucalyptus Bamboo Soap bar. The soap is anti-everything (and that's a good thing): antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory. We also include activated bamboo charcoal which helps remove impurities and detoxify your skin. It's my go-to soap to use after the gym or surfing.
Local businesses you work with: Ali'i Kula Lavender (Maui), Grandmas Coffee House (Maui), Alohatherapy (Big Island), and other local shops throughout the state.
Why Hawaii? The Big Island is where we're from and where we started. It taught us to use all of what nature gave us to help heal. Hawaii has an abundance of diverse plants (medicinal and fragrant) which make it unique and beneficial for body care.
Although we're in Laguna now, the meaning of Aloha can be found anywhere and everywhere. We keep that concept by sharing our lifestyle and beliefs wherever we are. Hawaii is culturally diverse and bonded by this meaning which makes us united.
We choose quality over quantity by creating small batches using thoughtfully combined ingredients with a purpose in mind to provide nourishing and beneficial effects.
Thank you, Janie and Daniel! Super excited to have your handmade soaps in the shop.
